‘Swiggy Packaging Assist’ will offer restaurants access to a variety of packing solutions according to the needs of their menu.
Bengaluru-based food delivery platform Swiggy has announced the launch of ‘Swiggy Packaging Assist’, a marketplace program for enabling packaging solutions to restaurants on its platform. The marketplace currently lists close to 30 products across eco-friendly and food grade certified materials including leakproof, sturdy, stackable, and heat insulant packaging materials.
‘Swiggy Packaging Assist’ will offer restaurants access to a variety of packing solutions according to the needs of their menu. It will connect restaurants with vendors of these materials. Sellers on the marketplace will offer discounts of up to 5% to restaurants opting for these solutions.
Swiggy is also building an on-ground team to provide customized solutions and consultation to restaurants to improve their quality of packaging and help them get higher customer ratings and satisfaction in turn.
The program has been rolled out to partners in Bangalore, Mumbai and Pune. The firm will make it accessible to the rest of the cities within the next three months.
After launching its partner financing programme ‘Swiggy Capital Assist’ last year, this is Swiggy’s second partner-focused initiative. Since the launch of Swiggy Capital Assist, the company claims that the programme has helped 363 restaurant partners across the 10 Swiggy cities to grow and expand their business through seamless access to additional working capital.
